Coronavirus Outbreak Ends Rumble Bees Season
BATTLE CREEK, MI - With the announcement Wednesday from the Federal Prospects Hockey League (FPHL), relative to the coronavirus outbreak, the Battle Creek Rumble Bees have suspended all hockey-related operations until further notice.
With still four weeks and nine road games remaining on their 57-games inaugural season schedule, the league-wide announcement, in essence, effectively ends the game schedule for the Rumble Bees 2019-20 campaign.
The Rumble Bees as stated by the FPHL, are committed to the health, safety, well-being and welfare of all our great fans, our community, the players and all team-related personnel.
The Battle Creek Hockey Club was slated to be in Elmira, NY this weekend for a two-games' series against the Enforcers before traveling to Delaware for a pair of clashes on Friday, March 20th and Saturday March 21st.
In the final two weeks of their first season, the Rumble Bees were scheduled to be in Columbus for a three games' series opposing the River Dragons, (March 27th, 28th and 29th) before capping the campaign with a pair or outings in Danville, IL against the Dashers on Friday, April 3rd and April 4th.
The Battle Creek Rumble Bees organization wishes to thank their many fans, season-ticket holders, corporate sponsors, suppliers, provisioners and all ancillary personnel for their wonderful participation, contributions and support of Rumble Bees pro hockey in Battle Creek in the 2019-20 season.
With our off-season activities arriving somewhat sooner than we had expected, the Rumble Bees organization will be keeping all of our community abreast of future announcements and happenings throughout the ensuing months.
